Ya Learn Something New Everyday

The following short You Tube video is about a Fore-Edge Book. I had never heard of this before yesterday. OMG!! I did some google research and was fasinated for a couple of hours.

As much as I have been a book freek for my entire life not to know about this is beyond me.

Oh, by the way, my next post will be about not receiving comments on my blog except from a very limited group(3-4)of friends.

Enjoy this wonder,

Weekend Over

This is an old photo of when I took a Tim Holtz class about 3 or 4 years ago. But since I still can't take pics and get them to play nice with my computer, old memories will have to do.

I actually cleaned up my studio this weekend, just rearranging supplies, etc. Now I will not be able to find anything for a while. HA!

I got a new toy too. I got a Sticker Maker machine. And it is Safety Orange, of course. Anything that moved was made into a sticker this weekend.

And it looks like my job will be changing some in the next few months. The company is reorganizing the Corporate Safety Dept, which I am a key component. I don't know exactly where I will be or exactly what my new role will be yet. But at this time all I know is I will still have a job and my wages are not being effected. Whew!!

Well I am off to bed as I have to leave early tomorrow and drive a 100 miles in the bad fog we have been having lately! Ugh!

Camera/Computer Help, Please!!

I am so upset with my camera and/or computer. I can't get pictures from my camera to my computer here lately. When I plug in my camera, my computer freezes up and stays there until I have to hold in the power button to get it to shut down, then start it back up again, it is a major hassle! So I have been working in my art journal some the last two weekends but have nothing to show you. Hopefully I can get it looked at soon. And if any real life geek happens to stop by with suggestions, I am all ears.

I have been learning how to sew paper for journals. Very fun! And I have been cutting and embossing stuff with my vagabond too.

But the most fun I have been doing on the weekends since the 1st is following Paula Phillips, Journal Artista, working on her art studio for her 31 day challenge. She has done an amazing job in just 2 weeks and we are helping her as she streams by giving her words of encouragement *cough*. (Sometimes we get a little pushy). Hee Hee! Please go look her up on YouTube under Journal Artista, and have a peek at the great progress she has been making.

Well back on the road tomorrow to work. Tomorrow I am driving 100 miles. But the traffic will be light since it is Martin Luther King Day, and alot of folks won't be commuting in the morning. That will be great for a Monday.
